Day Eight — 2012 Great Release Challenge! by Silver RavenWolf copyright 2012
The number eight represents a master number, and you have certainly gained mastery over your environment in the past seven days! Whoo-hoo! The next two days we travel into the kitchen, ferreting out goo, dirt, grime, and other yucky stuff. We’re working on the kitchen this weekend because good food and easy prep are often a big part of the holiday season. By working on the kitchen area this week-end, we can move about with ease when its time for baking, making goodies for parties, or creating a fantastic holiday meal.
It is so much easier to prepare holiday meals in a clean and orderly kitchen. I couldn’t resist whipping up this Red Devil cake!
Once we have the kitchen area clean, we’ll organize in the way that bests suits you. Any area in your living environment should work for you — not against you. The Moon is in Libra most of the weekend, so you may feel the urge to beautify your kitchen or other area of the home by releasing the old and welcoming the new. Taking special note, Hanukkah begins on Sunday.
While you are doing today’s challenge, take a good look at your kitchen area. What is working for you and what is working against you? Is something positioned that it has become a major pain? Can you move it? If not, can you add or take away from the area to make cooking and food storage easier? Write changes you would like to make on your Wish List.
Your Mission Today: Your refrigerator.
The refrigerator isn’t one of my favorites. Who knows what crawled in there, you know? One of my friends said, “You just moved, why would you need to clean the fridge?”
Thanksgiving. Family. Friends.
Need I say more?
Today, we completely empty the refrigerator, clean it out, and check all the dates on condiments, eggs, milk, etc. before we put them back in.
Eating expired food is not safe. Visit this site if you are unsure how long to keep what:
For example, you’ll find that most leftovers are only good for three days stored in the refrigerator, four at the maximum.
Food and Good Fortune
Keeping your refrigerator clean and well-stocked of items you frequently use (milk, eggs, butter, etc.) draws an abundance of food and good fortune into the home. I know that you’re busy; but, don’t forget to bless the food either before you put it away or during prep. Just like anything else, negativity can collect around the food and packaging. Today, unless you are totally self-sufficient, your food has traveled through a variety of hands before it reaches your table. You have no idea has handled the veggies, meats, condiments, cheeses, etc.
If you took care of your refrigerator earlier this week, then choose something else that fits in with your schedule. One of my friends following the challenge cleaned her refrigerator a week ago. Today, she obtained a new filing cabinet and plans to go through family paperwork. Remember, it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do something!
